In regards to the citizens being required to maintain city property, I have taken care of the right of way in front of my residence for 34 years by my own choosing. But now the city says I have to maintain city property or face consequences. If the city believes it has the right to require me to take care of city rights of way, then the citizens should have the right to demand payment from the city for required labor. Says minimum fee of $50 for the average household. After all, fair is fair, the citizens’ time is just as valuable as the city employees.
